The closing date for entries is 5pm on 23 March 2012 and players are advised to read the terms and conditions which are available through www.worldsnookerqschool.com and the online entry system.
World Snooker will once again be staging Q School in May, with a TWO YEAR TOUR CARD available for all players who qualify.
Q School is open to everyone (subject to terms and conditions) and there will be 12 places available on the World Snooker Tour. All players who come through Q School will be given a TWO YEAR TOUR CARD which guarantees their place on the pro circuit for a minimum of 2012/13 and 2013/14.
It will be played at the World Snooker Academy in Sheffield, starting on May 13, 2012, and there will be three separate events, with the semi-finalists from each to be given a Tour Card.
Entry into all three events is just £1,000, with those who qualify earning the chance to compete for millions of pounds in prize money on the main circuit, and take on the world's best players. Prize money for the tour has gone up from £3.5million to over £6million within the past two years and is expected to go past £8million in the next year.
A new Q School ranking list will also be introduced, with players earning one point for every frame won. During the main tour season, should any of the tournament draws fall below a total entry of 96 (or 128 in 2013/14) then the field will be topped up to 96 or 128 with the highest ranked players from the Q-School list.

This year's Q School will be even bigger than the first staging last year with TWO SEASONS on the main tour up for grabs for the same price as last year's event so the competition will be tough.
